Every Girl Needs

a little bit of lace
don´t you think...

The day before we left Italy, we went to the lokal market
and I was very lucky to find a few booths with trims a lace

these are used for italian curtains
I think they were really pretty
Needed to have some...

if you´re wondering what those cotton threads are doing in there
it´s nose thread for the bears :D

I did had a little bit of lace in my stock already
bought home from Portobello Market in London
and I tell  you - it is a little bit
 because lace and trim are so hard to find in Denmark
and if they do have some at the flea markets
they also know to price it well...

I hate to have to be thrifty
and spare when I create
so I decided I had to go get some more when I got home.

and knowing that it wouldn´t be possible here
I turned to Ebay and was lucky enough to
get a few bags

so these goodies have arrived in the studio

perfect for tea dyeing  too

I do find this very pretty
and think it will be great for some more pockets

now stored in an little suitcase I found in my studio.
Not a pretty suitcase with a pocket in or something
I actually have been using it for bear stuff
but though it would look much more prettier with the lace in.

Oh - I love trims and lace.
just can´t get enough can we...

Wishing you a oh so pretty weekend
Tina ♥♥♥

Hi Tina, I'm a blogging friend of Lisa's at Tarnished & Tattered. The gift you sent her was so beautiful. She invited us to check you out. I see that you live in Denmark. My grandmother was born and raised in Denmark then her family moved to Utah when she was a teenager. I am so fascinated with Denmark and everyone that lives there. I want to get to understand everything lovely about Denmark. I love architecture, fabric, design, gardens, furniture, food, colors, and all your lace. Pleace come visit me at

Hugs to You

I would like to exchange something with you. Would you like to do that? My e-mail in:

Let me know and give me your address.

Big Hugs
